RE: Sitting in a null

I had the same problem, and I like bass. Why throw away 2 octaves of sound...

Here's one thing to at least consider besides other suggestions (i.e. re-arranging the room). If you have some room just to the immediate rear of your listening position, put a sub there. It doesn't have to be a big one. Try a powered sub with a 10 or 12" woofer with a built-in crossover and lots of speaker wire to run to your speakers or amp. I purchased one from Parts-express for 250 bucks and it does the job very well. I was able to hide the wire along the walls/floor.

It's set low in SPL volume, almost inaudible unless you turn it off and fills in nicely with the crossover set at the lowest setting. The woofer is down firing and the hookup I use is for L and R into the inputs. You also have to pay attention to Phase and mine has a switch for that.

You'll have to run power to it. Speaker wire for both channels goes to either your speaker's connections or amplifier. You could also do a wireless hookup I suppose but I had the wire to do it and I didn't want to complicate things.
